The year of death on this gravestone is incorrect for William S. Crawford. The correct year is 1890. It was found in Laurel Hill Cemetery face down by his descendants. The family paid to have it erected and when they received the photo of the gravestone they discovered the incorrect date. It had been apparently been face down for a long time, since the engraving is well preserved. His son, Charles, was born just 6 days before William died of tuberculosis.
